Fermanagh Farms does its best to make your experience as an event vendor as easy and rewarding as possible.


All Vendors

  • All commercial vendors must have Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance and  provide documentation of proof to Fermanagh Farms at info@fermanaghfarms.com. If vendor does not have insurance, they must inform us as soon as possible.

Catering and Bar

  • Caterers not on our Preferred vendor list are subject to a Landmark Fee based on the following schedule related to guest count.  Up to 100 guests – $500 Fee, up to 150 guests – $750 Fee, up to 200 guests or more – $1000 Fee
  • Order and invoice with the client dinnerware and bar glasses from the vendor of our choosing. This includes dishes, cutlery, glasses, table linens, napkins and other catering and bar specific-related items. Fermanagh Farms will have rented for the client tent, table, chairs and other furniture items from a vendor that can provide the items and style that the client is looking for. By ordering dinnerware rentals from the same company we minimize the number of vendors delivering and save delivery fees. Having catering and bar order and invoice these items ensures the proper items in the proper quantities are ordered.
  • Setting of dinnerware, glassware, etc. Fermanagh Farms will have tables placed and linens set as per clients floor plan. (Note: If caterers are setting up decor items, there are to be no candles or any kind of flame inside the barn)
  • Have setup, serving and clean up staff sufficient to accommodate the group size
  • Serve food as per clients wishes
  • Clear tables of dinner and glassware at the end of dinner
  • Used dinnerware and cutlery must be placed in containers as provided by rental supplier and be moved to storage area in barn as directed by Fermanagh Farms staff. 
  • Garbage, recycling and compost containers are provided by Fermanagh Farms. Mixed garbage must be removed by caterer but if they choose to sort waste, sorted garbage, recycling, alcohol and compost may remain on property.   
  • For in-barn events, garbage, recycling, alcohol and compost are to be placed in the kitchen by the South doors for removal by our staff. 
  • For in-tent events, garbage, recycling, alcohol and compost are to be left in one location at the tent for removal by our staff.

Water Usage & Availability
